Hi Ed's, a very good morning.
Would Barcelona be willing to include sergi Roberto in a deal for pipco? Is he on the surplus list? More importantly would the forces at liverpool be interested in player+cash kind of deal?
Thank-you for you kindness in this unkind transfer window.


{Ed002's Note - He is not on the surplus list but the clubs interested in him have had little luck getting Barcelona to talk. Liverpool has shown no interest to date.}

1.) 12 Aug 2017 09:15:07
Pipe dream unfortunately. After Messi, Suarez, Busquets, Iniesta, Pique and Alba I would say Roberto is probably the next best they have. He is a really classy midfielder and not a bad right back either.

2.) 12 Aug 2017 09:29:44
I get a feeling that any player on Barca's surplus list to be included in a deal would be an above average yet nothing special player, which makes the whole idea of it unappealing.

3.) 12 Aug 2017 09:30:45
That team is slim pickings IMO apart from top two and pique.
Maybe Gomes and Ter Stegen + 80million and then we could maybe talk.

I also find it hard to believe that they wouldn't come back.
Real probably will if not as Phil is knocking on the door of best in CAM in world for me. A season in champions league and people start to take seriously.

Question for Ed02: Have Liverpool been aggressive enough in pursuit of players this transfer window? Do you think if we'd have put money where our mouth is we could've got things do for targets?

{Ed002's Note - Liverpool has gone about the transfers in the entirely wrong way - but it is nothing about money.}

4.) 12 Aug 2017 10:32:18
Did I just read "has Liverpool been aggressive enough this window? "
Only way they could have been more aggressive is if VVD and NK where bundled into the boot of Klopps BMW and driven to Melwood.

{Ed002's Note - He has a KR200 - there is only room for one of them. }

5.) 12 Aug 2017 10:41:17
Should have looked outside the club for a sporting director promoting from within where a culture of incompetance has been prevelant for years just breeds more err incompetance . we have seen more of the same this transfer window. they should burn that rick parry guide to doing transfers.

6.) 12 Aug 2017 10:46:39
Why majorly weaken our team selling a player with years of contract when we can keep him, get a good year out of him and sell him for AT LEAST the same price judging by how transfers are rising year by year. its the same as Liepzig (why have no want or need to sell the player and we don't need the money) .

7.) 12 Aug 2017 13:38:16
8;minutes and our defence exposed. We are such a good team, something really needs to be done with our defence. Vvd as soon as. It'll be embarrassing but not as embarrassing as losing to mediocre teams.

8.) 12 Aug 2017 14:03:41
Ed, sorry couldn't find new post icon. Any idea why we didn't move for Joe Hart? It seems mad as we were the only team at the top he could've gone to bar city. He is surely an upgrade on what we currently have.

{Ed001's Note - because he is crap.}

9.) 12 Aug 2017 14:19:53
Totally agree Eds. The only reason he doesn't get called out on his mistakes is 'cause he's English.

10.) 12 Aug 2017 14:22:12
Didn't Torinos owner come out and say he didn't expect an England goalkeeper to make so many mistakes? Says it all really.

11.) 12 Aug 2017 14:44:44
Fair enough guys. I have to disagree with Steve wonder, England gks have had a hard time over last ten years, Carson Robinson and the other fella all made one mistake and we're dropped forever. I have always felt Hart was over rated but rest of country seemed to disagree. Until the euros where he was crap. What Hart does well is organise and control defence and I feel that is what we are lacking. But I buy that he has lost it.

12.) 12 Aug 2017 17:41:24
Nah it seems like he does superred but he just shouts loudly. Literally I think that is his only trick. Shouting and chest thumping.

13.) 12 Aug 2017 19:09:14
Sergi roberto is such a tidy passer, If we were to take him i would want him in CM, not being put as a rb like Barcelona shifted him out. Would still rather keep couts though.

14.) 12 Aug 2017 20:17:49
Dear Jurgen. we're going to take your star player and you can have anyone off our surplus list.

Yeh right!

15.) 12 Aug 2017 22:37:01
Under FSG, we haven't taken any surplus players as part of big money transfers out. I don't know if FSG think the supporters see such a scenario as Liverpool accepting cast-offs, but the sale of Torres, Sterling and Suarez didn't bring back any players from Chelsea, Man City or Barcelona.

I suspect it will be the case this time too. Why should Liverpool buy players who we don't need?

16.) 13 Aug 2017 07:04:17
@ superred91

losing to mediocre teams?

Last time I checked 3-3 was not a losing score line.

17.) 13 Aug 2017 15:28:23
Red, it sure felt like it was a loss .

18.) 13 Aug 2017 16:01:52
Fair point resend but we were losing 2.1 when I wrote that post and wasn't necessarily talking about watford. Was talking about defence in general.

Yeah, again I thought there were tonnes of positives from watford game.

19.) 14 Aug 2017 14:37:46
If Barcelona want coutinio and they want to offer a player or two in the deal then it has to be one of their top players. Next time they offer rahifina we should send em markovic in no 10 shirt. Don't think the part exchange is going to happen is it? Just psper talk. The first two offers were cash.

I think if we were to do a swap it has to be iniesta. If it truly is a iniesta replacement (pc) then we'll take the replaced player. The fact is, they just want the world's best south America players.



01 Jun 2017 11:02:35
So Mr. Peter moore is the new CEO.
Does it mean we can expect some Transfers FIFA style? I'd buy bale, one future player that goes 97 and one bonucci as i and pretty sure everyone else does when starting with a new FIFA season :P.


1.) 01 Jun 2017 14:13:53
I think that spending large amounts of money on a player has become unfashionable in many fans' eyes. Notably, clubs like City, PSG and the Chinese teams (in particular) are not well-respected amongst football supporters, and as such, a lot would like to see disassociation from these teams in the way that their club conducts its transfer business.

Add to that, there is a shared opinion now that there's something quite noble about spending less money on a player who turns out to be a world beater. Solanke is a perfect example, if he turns out to be a "30 goal a season striker" a lot of fans will respect the fact he cost not a lot and will want their club to do the same. At least that's how I see it. So with regard to Salah, a lot of supporters will be thinking there is some rough diamond out there, who is younger and cheaper. It's a no win situation, because if a club only buys cheap players and those players do not perform, the fans get on the owner's back.



29 Jun 2015 04:49:45
Have city given up on sterling eds? i mean they could buy delph or probably any player they want if it was English quota they were looking at? it has gone rather quiet.


{Ed001's Note - no.}

1.) 29 Jun 2015 09:22:36
We'll probably hear more after July 1st. That date seems to be getting banded about a bit on here for FFP reasons or something.

2.) 29 Jun 2015 10:44:52
What has Delph got to do with Sterling? Just because he's English? I'd say they'd prefer players that are actually good though, they don't need more Rodwells & Sinclairs.



25 Mar 2015 04:12:21
Hi eds,

would we be interested in romain hamouma and max gradel from saint etienne. also one player i higly rate is wissem ben yedder but he seems to move elsewhere .
and i think we spent our money on the wrong belgian kid, world cup hangover it was,


{Ed002's Note - No.}



03 Feb 2015 14:08:34
eds what do you make of wisem bin yedder of tolouse . i got a chance to watch him play in a tolouse game a year back and he was quality . seems like he is doing well this season too. would he suit liverpool ? i don't see why not .


{Ed002's Note - He is likely going to move to Marseille in the summer when Gignac leaves.}

25 Oct 2017 11:51:17
Hi what is markovich upto? i think he could improve his game watching playing and learning from salah? he had the requisites.
mane is injured could use him on one of the flanks? and drop coutinho back into the midfield? could earn his money i think? definitely think he is an option.

oh wait a minute is he actually at LFC?


1.) 25 Oct 2017 12:13:19
I thought he was pretty good at Hull. I'm sure he could do a job. Maybe he hasn't made any mates at lfc? I dunno, he is surely good enough for our bench. Ed any unusual reason why he is constantly frozen out? Or is it the obvious answer.

{Ed001's Note - he just does not offer any versatility. We can have Milner on the bench and he can cover there, right back, right mid, left mid, centre mid or Robertson who can play left back.}

2.) 25 Oct 2017 12:13:50
Markovic is still at the club, we wanted too much money for him the summer so Fiorentina and Watford looked else where. Watford struck gold because of that in signing Richarlison! Football is a funny old game in that way.

3.) 25 Oct 2017 12:32:53
Not needed then. Should have just sold him in the summer for an offer lower than our asking price. He will be worth even less after a year in the wilderness of reserve football.

4.) 25 Oct 2017 13:00:41
Pretty good at Hull?

The team that were relegated?

And he’s an option for us? πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ.

5.) 25 Oct 2017 13:01:29
He's not good enough for us, he needs to go, should've been well gone by now, we should just accept anything for him and get rid.

6.) 25 Oct 2017 13:28:32
He is out of contract next season as well, the club can't sign players or sell them. We rejected an offer of around 25 million for Sakho at the start of the window, and then accepted basically the same offer when no one else came in late in the window. Those who do our negotiations play too much FIFA 17 or Football Manager and has lost touch with reality i think, so what does FSG do? they hire the chief executive of FIFA 17 to sign and sell players (Just kidding here)

7.) 25 Oct 2017 13:55:41
They were relegated yet Marco silva is still praised a lot, so much that many fans fancy him for lfc job should kloppget fed up or fired. Markovic and glucas were the two shining lights along with Robertson and harry maguire (he was hull wasn't he? I get him and Keane mixed up. Keane was burnley eh? )

Swansea nearly got relegated with siggurdson in the team and loriente who are high class players. Gibson is playing in championship (I think) and could easily play in over half the teams in Pl. I get eds point. Klopp does like versatility eh. Big reason he fancied Aoc I reckon. A lot of folk were down about signing the ox but I think he is going to play his best football for us. He is nowhere near his prime yet. A lot of time for improvement. His pace is blistering and it's not just mindless, pointless running, he has an end produc. It was the one of two positives I took from spurs, we got a glimpse of the real ox and moreno was one of our best players along with salah and gomes and ox. I hope moreno form is permanent. OK he ain't amazing but good enough the way he is playing. Ed025 said it well the other day. "Good for moreno" that is true. It's the change that is surprising and lack of goal conceding mistakes. For me he is in top five lbs in prem atm

*on phone to alberto moreno* I want that grand today Alberto!

8.) 26 Oct 2017 12:31:19
I still think he could a job in place of injured mane. he has the pace and skill i think.
and it allows coutinho to be dropped in mid so adds creativity to the mid and enables can / hendo/ milner to just sit deep and protect back CBs.
sry just looking at options and what could be done.
i feel markovic can still save his LFC career if given a lifeline. i mean lallana and mane are out till december so, he can be tried for november.



17 Oct 2017 22:11:40
Asked in the morning and Well how many think now we will batter spurs 6-0?
I never lie. It will happen.


{Ed025's Note - spurs are not maribor akshit...whoa back a bit there mate..

1.) 17 Oct 2017 22:20:05
They are not even Utd. They are way better than Utd.

2.) 17 Oct 2017 22:28:46
Tough game on Sunday. Hopefully they will turn up and play and not park a bus.

3.) 17 Oct 2017 22:30:37
Honestly, I've been saying for a few weeks now (since the Spartak draw) that we are going to hammer someone soon and after the United draw (which I was hoping would be the team we hammer) I said it'll be Spurs.

It seemed to be tonight instead, but I still believe we'll beat Spurs comfortably 3-1.

4.) 17 Oct 2017 22:32:46
I also think we'll beat them but not predicting this one, I think it'll be a close game, it certainly won;t be easy but i reckon we'll edge it.

5.) 17 Oct 2017 22:55:08
Me to corl only an going to go with1-3 aswell hopfully between us we can bring some positivity to this page over the next month pal.

6.) 18 Oct 2017 01:40:44
We usually do well against spurs. I would love us to hammer them as we are the better team and they need knocking off their high horse. they are lucky to have harry kane. without him they're average.

What a result! yeah, let's get rid of klopp! he doesn't know what he's doing! only getting us the biggest score we have ever had in the worlds elite football competition.

The confidence will be back. chuffed as you like. nice one ox, lovely taken goal. deadly. some of the best football I have ever watched. we are the second best team in the league. I think city are top at the moment. Utd came to anfield and played as if they were burnley, parking the bus, coz they know, if you play we will beat you, we are better than you. we are better than arsenal (4 0) better than spurs, better than Chelsea imo and better than utd. I can honestly see us pushing on know. we have a solid base to push on from and we have an almost fully fit squad. Lallana due back and that can only be good.

7.) 18 Oct 2017 02:23:35
I don’t know what is more fanciful you thinking we will score 6 or Spurs will score 0. I fancy us to get a result against them, 2-1 for me.

8.) 18 Oct 2017 04:31:34
It is simple we were bound to score. And since we are just like that nothing or everything.
Everything phase has started. Spurs will try to play against us. But unfortunately they don't have speed in that team. They will get battered.
So 6-0, it is that kind of season.

TBH I feel we aren't much far from city in terms of first team. Bad defenders, great attackers. Ours weren't scoring much but it was just matter of time.
Start ox in mid ahead of gini/ hendo and I think spurs are there for the taking.

9.) 18 Oct 2017 05:49:24
i agree with smeg head. 2 1, or 1 0. is it at home? if so, it could be 4 0? happened last year (or was it the year before 5 1?) They will try and play 100% and we will win. it is a matter of being clinical in front of goal. it is no exaggeration to say, if Liverpool took even 75% of their decent chances we would've won nearly every game scoring 5/ 6 goals. we have been creating the chances and that is why I have not lost faith. Newcastle was the only game this season that I thought we were poor, firmino makes a massive difference and the premier league has started to really take notice of the lad. he is clearly growing as a player and getting better all the time, he was immense today. I got a thumbs down for saying we are the 2nd best team in the league right now, SEVEN NIL. did you not watch that football? it was amazing, like watching Barcelona 3 years ago. I know they're not the strongest team in the group but they had a lot to do to get into the ucl proper. they aren't rubbish, although they were simply blown away.

Another clean sheet for the boys. 2 in a row now. I think Moreno is one of the best left backs in the league right now

last season our bench wasn't that strong and it showed. we were thin on first team quality. now we have hendo, the ox, Sturridge, solanke, gomes, migs and woodburn. with mane and Lallana to come! we need to turn this in to a winning streak. and by Christmas we can be firmly in the top four. oh and grujic and ings.

10.) 18 Oct 2017 06:21:29
Without Kane Spurs are average? I suggest Liverpool's trophy haul over the last decade suggests they are nothing but average.

11.) 18 Oct 2017 06:27:51
Superred, My local non league club would have given Maribor a game, calm down son!

{Ed001's Note - they got through the qualifying rounds to make it into the Champions League proper, your local non-league club must be a bit special if this hyperbole is even close to being true.}

12.) 18 Oct 2017 07:02:04
Would be very happy with 3 points against Spurs. Not bothered about margin of victory.
Maribor were unbeaten at home in 14 matches including Spartak Moscow. They can't be that easy to beat 0-7.

13.) 18 Oct 2017 07:58:23
Ed001 My local non league club is special, Maribor aren't.

{Ed001's Note - no one said they are, but your comment is idiotic and you just make yourself seem a bit of a tool with it. Disrespectful tool at that. They did not qualify by being crap, so please stop disrespecting a side that have worked damn hard to get there. They have achieved far more than you ever will.}

14.) 18 Oct 2017 08:36:52
Well said Ed1.

15.) 18 Oct 2017 08:56:18
Georgie, I thought you were joking at the start but now it seems that you really believe your own hype. Your non-league team is not a spec on Maribor. They are paid professionals who have CL experience and got through THREE qualifying rounds to get here. Also, they drew with Spartak (who thumped Sevilla) and Sevilla only scored 3 goals against then in Sevilla. Pretty sure your team would have been soundly beaten by any of these teams by high double digits in goals. Oh, and what would LFC have done to your team on that performers? They may not be at our level but your level of disrespect for them, is callous and shameful.

16.) 18 Oct 2017 09:37:13
I think a draw away at spurs would be a good result, with Kane on fire at the moment, and how we didn't defend set pieces well last night again, got to be aware that its not going to be a walk in the park!

17.) 18 Oct 2017 10:14:45
Calm down Georgie? my team just won 7 0 mate. away from home in the European cup. Of course I'm confident of beating Spurs at home.

Yeah I agree with the eds, a bit disrespectful to Maribor mate, they have won their league 6 times in the last 7 years? sumin like that. a good little team who were 3 down before they had tied their laces, never had a chance because the boys were on form. the defence looked pretty good today too.

18.) 18 Oct 2017 11:39:24
our recent trophy haul has been about as spectacular as spur's has. But our total trophy haul wouldn't fit in three of spur's cabinets.

19.) 18 Oct 2017 14:56:56
Realize Spurs held Real Madrid yesterday? quite a different level to Maribor!



17 Oct 2017 10:57:38
who on here think we will blast spurs 6-0 maybe?


1.) 17 Oct 2017 11:38:57
Ron Keague?

2.) 17 Oct 2017 12:10:32
Nah I'm thinking 8-0.

Not me, OP. Ron? DEFO!

4.) 17 Oct 2017 13:33:11
I'm going so I hope so! I'm usually pessimistic but I'm feeling optimistic for some reason. Give me a 3-1.

5.) 17 Oct 2017 13:26:44

9.) 18 Oct 2017 07:18:46
πŸ˜„ I think I said yesterday I was disappointed that so many had already written off the Spurs game!
I also said we'd win a tight game.

6-0 it is then 😎.



29 Sep 2017 11:03:49
10 pages and posters say, attacking wise we are the best team to watch?
I beg your pardon people, but i think attacking wise we are the most frustrating team to watch atm.


1.) 29 Sep 2017 18:41:38
We can be attractive and at the same time, frustrating to watch, Akshit. That much I can say.



24 Sep 2017 19:35:07
Ok so every time I/ we bash hendo calling him not good enough, he scores a goal? Somebody is a avid reader of this site shutting up us trolls ;)
Wonder when migs will start reading here, lots of appreciation for him on here.
Swear to God if he ever plays again in goal I am not watching the game.
Infact there should be a movement if migs starts the game fans should walk out of match. Will help klopp phasing him out ASAP.


1.) 24 Sep 2017 19:52:06
Keep ripping into him as he could be our leading scorer for the season as we haven't got a striker that can score.

2.) 24 Sep 2017 20:11:01
"Infact there should be a movement if migs starts the game fans should walk out of match. Will help klopp phasing him out ASAP. "

Perhaps we should fly a banner from a plane too?

We're better than this akshit please.

3.) 24 Sep 2017 20:01:57
So has anyone ever been in an electric chair for 90 mins an survived, I did yesterday watching Liverpool don't know how many times they going to put me through this haha!

4.) 24 Sep 2017 20:36:40
Mignolet has made 14 saves this season in 5 games. It's just a shame he's also conceded 11 πŸ™ˆ. He's also attempted more punches than Anthony Joshua of which he's probably only connected with 2 of them and I've seen vampires deal with crosses better than him. We should call him jigsaw as he goes to pieces in the box.

5.) 24 Sep 2017 20:42:40
Well I will reply briefly to win anything you need a striker that's scoring 20+ goals per season then the rest chip in I can't remember the last time we had a striker than stugg and Suarez so please correct me if am wrong.

6.) 24 Sep 2017 20:53:26
You missed 'he couldn't catch a cold' Who was it that said the old ones are the best? They were very wrong.

7.) 24 Sep 2017 21:03:32
Ha ha ha jigsaw jayden didn't the newcastle fans used to call lee clark that.

8.) 24 Sep 2017 21:55:26
Harry what is your point? Henderson is 27. So for the first 3 years with us he was still a young player, And he has spent the last 2 seasons in defensive midfield or on the treatment table. He had one season at about 24 years old where he was played as a box to box midfielder and he scored 7 goals and created 15.

You are the first person to start banging the drum that he is a ball winner though. So why are we now judging him on goals?

You slagged him off for weeks and after he scored, rather than give him a break for a few days, you have started slamming him for not scoring more, when it isn't his bloody job in our team. I urge you to look up how many Mascherano, Alonso and Lucas scored mate. Alonso got 19 in 210 games. Lucas got 7 in 346 games. Mascherano got 2 in 139 games. Henderson actually has 24 in 248 appearances. So he is well ahead of even Alonso in terms of goals per game, who took the odd set piece or penalty and played in a much better and more stable LFC team.

Really don't know why i have to do that to explain to you that deeper midfielders don't score goals. I would've thought it was common sense.

9.) 24 Sep 2017 22:09:21
The team needs balance a midfielder who doesn't care about anything but sniffing danger all our midfielders do the same job if we had a sitter wid 2 in front would b a lot better also s big dominant center half and full backs who can defend 1st then attack, also have to agree with above post we need a proper centre forward, all the teams from 1st to 6th have this or strengthened those areas except us criminal.

10.) 24 Sep 2017 22:48:32
Mk am with u there, also how unselfish hendo is the amount of times he been one on one and give it to the likes of firmino, harry just doesn't like the lad yet i think he was our best player sat night mate.

11.) 24 Sep 2017 22:57:50
Do we not score enough for you hailstones? Your post is terrible mate, we score at will why do we need another striker? Harry, I can't believe you are now judging Hendo on how many goals he's scored! It's like judging Couts on how many defensive headers he wins! Yes he can do it but it's not what he's there for!

12.) 24 Sep 2017 23:00:39
hendo will be fine. it's become popular to say he doesn't or can't pass forward. I remember a numpty in my high school football team would just lump the ball forward at any time, aimless and hopeless. I'd be calling for the ball at wingback and he'd just say - "why go backwards, we can go forward" well he was crap, and that way of thinking is crap.

I've always thought hendo would be more useful in a box to box role, . r at least influencing the play higher up the pitch. sam as Can. playing in that 'deeper" position works against his natural instincts, and I think is delaying his development in that position.

13.) 25 Sep 2017 00:46:19
I think Henderson normally does a decent job as the deeper midfielder but is more suited to the box to box, as does Can and Wiji and Grujic and Keita and Ejaria. Whether by intent or poor planning or lack of prioritization in a DM, i don't know but i certainly think we would benefit from having a good one in the squad.

I saw Hendo playing plenty of forward passes on Saturday. Great player who reacted when the critics were on his back. Chuffed for the lad. People say he isn't vocal enough but about ten minutes of air time on bt sport was Hendo shouting at someone. His goal was very coolly taken.

So that's forward passes, vocal and goal scorer. Not to mention all the tackles, interceptions and switches he played. That performance was why I like Jordan so much.

The twenty goal a season post was written by a moron who surely must know salah is almost half way there already and the season has barely started.

I thought comparing Henderson to other midfielders was futile, wasn't it MK?
So why compare him to alonso, mascherano and lucas!

17.) 25 Sep 2017 04:56:43
Deep midfielders doesn't score goals! Yes!
But they do shield the defense and control a footbalmatch ductating from the deep. Something he doesn't!
Lack of goals was the main reason he was dropped deeper.
Where do you think he will play if the club buys a proper holding midfielder! He won't replace Kieta / Wiji / Lallana ( Klopp's pet) upfront nor he would displace a proper holding mid! This is his final year!

Harry - Henderson wasn't dropped deep due to not scoring enough goals - he was dropped deep because we lack options in that department.

Besides scoring goals isn't what we need him for - when he's played right he's great at getting the ball forward, seeing out the right plays and tackle through. His work rate is top and we all know how valuable he is for us when fit and played properly.

I don't think you're right about him not being able to replace any of the players you mention. Keita hasn't even arrived yet, I am excited too, but let's see how it pans out when he's had a game for us. I'd also take a fit Henderson over Wijnaldum all day every day. Lallana and Henderson might not offer exactly the same, but they still offer equally to our team.

Besides he has time to improve in the holding role, it's a long season so let's see it all out before we even start to talk about next season.

19.) 25 Sep 2017 06:44:43
Yea! Come next summer we will have options in the deep and I ll see who he replaces up front! Wijnaldum and Lallana are Klopp's pets! There is no chance Hendo would replace anyone of them! Our midfield for next summer would be a holding mid - Keita - Coutinho ( fi he stays ) .

Can you tell me h is he better than Can in the deeper role.

{Ed001's Note - what makes you think Can will be here?}

20.) 25 Sep 2017 06:59:35
You just said yourself that we'll bring in a holding midfielder next season. If we assume that you're right (I believe so too) there's really no point in discussing whether or not he is better than Can in the holding role. Neither are going to play there next season.
Besides it seems most likely that Can won't be a Liverpool player come next season.

Whenever Henderson has been fit he has played for us. Add to that, that he is our captain this alone should tell you that he won't get dumped.

21.) 25 Sep 2017 07:24:30
Hendo is wasted at DM in my opinion. Probably the best midfielder we have to do the job because he's disciplined but offers more going forward than others in the team. People seem to forget how good his link up play is when giving and receiving in and around the oppos box just because his job nowadays is to keep the ball and pass sideways. If we buy a DM (or two) next summer our midfielders to compete for those two advanced CM positions should be Couts, Hendo, Wiji, Keita and Lallana. Milner, Can and Grujic will likely leave I'd say.
Still don't think Bobby is a striker by the way!

22.) 25 Sep 2017 08:11:26
The Red

Till we bring someone in that is January / Summer. Play Emre Can there! Who knows he might change his mind by end of December.
Can is technically a better player than Hendo any day of the week!

23.) 25 Sep 2017 08:47:28
Wiji and Lallana are Klopp's pet yet in your next sentence they are dropped next season! Make your mind up!

24.) 25 Sep 2017 09:53:03
Spot on, MK. To "some' on here, Hendo can do nothing right. He has a great game all around like Sat?, "they" say he did not make any forward passes which is patently false. They say he does not score goals enuff. Well, he gets us the winner on Sat But "they" come back and shift the narrative again, saying that suddenly he does not score enuff goals. People need to cut the BS and get right to the point here.

"These" people don't like Hendo. In fact, they hate his guts, period. In "their" eyes the boy can do nothing right. The boy has played multiple games for us while carrying an injury BUT that's not enough for them. It will NEVER be enuff so I suggest people move on from such disingenuous and dishonest posts from the Hendo Haters. They will never change nor learn.

Making my mind he will have more pets next summer!

As for conspiracies - I am not sure on this but i think Clyne got some scandal on his hands he reported to the police. It could be personal reasons he is out and club are doing right by keeping it closed.
that or he is just injured and under diagnosis and docs haven't yet given an actual time frame on the extent of his injury.

For one I'd love to have Rafa back over klopp any given day. He was a genius. No LFC manager since 98 gets even close.

good shout, but if anything he has had, a not so convincing season at leverkusen. Probably not an upgrade over origi IMHO.

i will add to it and it may riff a few up on here but i haven't had anyone say bad word about Milner as player either in my circle.

I have always been a fan and i think he is a far better player than he is given credit for, esp at the Liverpool pages. I for one definitely feel better when Milner is in the team regardless the position.

I still think he could a job in place of injured mane. he has the pace and skill i think.
and it allows coutinho to be dropped in mid so adds creativity to the mid and enables can / hendo/ milner to just sit deep and protect back CBs.
sry just looking at options and what could be done.
i feel markovic can still save his LFC career if given a lifeline. i mean lallana and mane are out till december so, he can be tried for november.

I still think drop coutinho into mid and ask can and gini to just sit back and half the problems are solved.
The other half is solved by dropping lovren and migs.
Having so many attackers still playing coutinho upfront and three man useless midfield is beyond me now.
He can use coutinho in midfield and just order can and gini to sit back.
But he is doing it.
Klopp has to be blamed at sheer failure to understand his team and failing to sign decent players.
I wholly disagree with the article.
We have players with steel in can and gini who can do the job of protecting the defense.
However a three of hendo can gini/ Milner doesn't work because no one is creative enough and everybody is trying to go for glory and drive forward even though it's clear they don't have enough quality for that.
But if you put coutinho there he becomes your guy to ping everything forward and can and gini can just relax and defend. Then you have curious case of grujic who klopp is reluctant to try. A 6'4 boy wonder who wins headers for fun both sides of the pitch and is a tough tackler.
But Mr klopp is worried and is not looking to let it go and try players.
No we don't need midfield players we need to trust academy players like wood burner Wilson for attack role. And drop coutinho in midfield and all these problems will suddenly disappear.
Actually that was the plan at the beginning g of the season but then plans changed because we got 10 man thrashed by city.
A 10 old can see that.
Klopp is just being a scaredly cat. That's is the problem. He has been gifting mistakes by giving more chances to migs lovren moreno hendo Milner.

I live hendo but he is post injury simply not good enough to give his soul to the club every 90 mins just like studger. Such players don't need to be given chances.

For Gods sake I hope he gives youth a chance before splurging next year.

Solutions lie within the club. When the old isn't working you have to try the new.
When the hugs aren't working you have to bring out the suplexes.

And that is my biggest grief with Klopp. For all his undoings and not sorting things the only thing i hate is how is just a shadow here of what he was at dortmund. At dortmund he favoured youth big time, played youth and made players.
At liverpool although only too seasons in and may be the relentless pressure in EPL he has not even bothered with any youth. (bar trent because clyne is AWOL) This current crop is so difficult to ignore.
i mean answers are right there at his academy sitting and waiting and he sticks with can/ coutinho/ lovren/ moreno's/ migs. ( not saying the are bad players but they are just passing time tbh) Five players in first team who he knows are not going to be here next season.
I wish for once Klopp throws his weight around and gets the youth in. too much talent there for his eyes to miss.
Maybe it won't work, this season it is not working anyways. i mean hell even mourihno is going around with lingaard and rashford!
Klopp has been no different in any regard to our recent past managers till now, when pressure has come on him he has been reluctant to make big calls.
i don't know how but i feel if this season if we donot try woodburn wilson and grujic gomez masterson it will be too late next sesaon because we will be looking for clear replacements for departing players (can/ coutinho/ lovren/ migs/ moreno/ others who might be moved like clyne/ milner and may be even mane if someone big comes in calling etc etc. )
The time is high and the calling is right. Klopp has to trust his academy players, he has to push them and he has to trust them.

But why is it so ed 01, i don't think at present there is any club worse than LFC in bedding youth from academy in first team.
i mean our neighbors are good at it.
Trent is getting fair chances i think but probably beacuse Clyne has gone AWOL.
we have unbelievable talent in academy and i can vouch for it having seen them play on TV and in person. Wilson, woodburn and grujic are first team material, may be not week in week out, but against say lesser oppostion they are more than just good.
out for future i think Dhanda and brewster are going to be special.
But will they ever be integrated in to the first teams?
We are out of EFL and this is what i feared most, no chances for these players anymore.
I know the what if case in our current situation. the team and coach are under tremendous pressure and if we start these players it might do more harm than good. But i think, no i believe its time to get into regular first team football. and yea probably coutinho, firmino, hendo are too big a name to be dropped.
i still feel once mane got injured either of woodburn or wilson should have got a chance instead of moving coutinho from midfield out wide. Gini/ hendo should have been replaced by grujic.
every year these players get older with no first team experience and then it gets way to late ( ala pacheco, coady before brannagan and kent now) . coutinho, can are just passing time, and we have their adequate replacements in wilson/ woddburn and grujic/ ejaria but without them getting chances we are just going to end up wasting loads on replacements from other teams.


{Ed001's Note - the fault has to be laid at the door of the managers. They are the ones that pick the team, successive managers have gone for quick fixes instead of long term solutions.}
